Exciting end of season finish in Division 1 of Clare league

PLAYOFFThere was plenty of drama in the First Division of the Clare Junior Soccer League today with most teams entering the day still in with chance of promotion or relegation.

Avenue Utd B had an impressive 5-1 away victory over Moher Celtic which guarantees them at least a playoff for the title with Sporting Ennistymon A now needing to beat Newmarket Celtic B on Wednesday to finish level on points.

Moher Celtic needed victory for automatic promotion but will now need to defeat Hermitage A in the promotion/relegation playoff to go up. Kildysart Celtic have won promotion back to the Premier Division after defeating Mounshannon Celtic 2-1 today. Things were so close in the division that had Kildysart lost this game they would have been playing a relegation playoff.

Mountshannon Celtic needed victory for a promotion playoff but have now ended up in a relegation/promotion match with Burren Utd from the Second Division.

In the final game of the day Turnpike Rovers entered their game with Newmarket Celtic B still having a chance of a promotion playoff but having lost they have been relegated to the Second Division. Newmarket Celtic B have ended the season in third place in the division and Sporting Ennistymon A will need to play well on Wednesday to defeat them and take the title race to a playoff at the County Grounds.
